Ok, I know this is way late, but I said I'd show my nativity that I painted as soon as I found my camera cord. Better late than never, right? I found this large nativity set at a garage sale for $10! The colors were not my cup of tea, but when has that ever stopped one of us died in the wool DIYer's? I don't have many pictures, and I thought I had taken one of the whole nativity all set up...whoops! I was sick and my brain wasn't firing on all cylinders.
Here are a couple of pieces that give you an idea of what it looked like before:
I decided to go for a pewter look. First I primed them all with my gray primer. Then brushed on two coats of DecoArt Dazzling Metallics Elegant Finish in Shimmmering Silver.
The tree was so beautiful this year. It was huge for our little living room, but we squeezed it in. I have to share a few pictures.
I bought some new mercury glass ornaments this year. I love the way they reflect the tree lights.
Although it's belated, I wish you joy in this New Year. Oh...my first tip this year...keep your camera cord in your camera bag. Just sayin'.
